Details

What did the First World War mean to American women? How did they respond as loyal citizens at a time when they didn’t even have the right to vote? Find out about the women who shored up home front support and the ones who braved German u-boats to cross the Atlantic to work in England and France as journalists, nurses, telephone operators, and entertainers.

Theresa Kaminski earned her Ph.D. in history from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her specialty is American women’s history, and she has published three books on women and war: Prisoners in Paradise, Citizen of Empire, and Angels of the Underground. She is currently Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

This lecture event is the first of five scheduled speakers on the topic of WWI, a 2018 program series commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice. Call the Mount Horeb Area Historical Society to learn more at 608-437-6486 or email mthorebhistory@mhtc.net.
